Japanese sales: Yokai Watch 2 still on top, handhelds reign supreme

Wii U sales

The weekly look at Japanese sales is now available thanks to Media Create’s numbers, where the top games are ranked according to their sales for the previous week. Coming as no surprise to anyone, Yokai Watch 2 has managed to claim top spot again, selling a whopping 330k copies in its second week of availability. The game has already managed to outsell the first Yokai Watch, will still claims a charted position at number six, just below Mario Kart 8.

Of the top ten games on the list, seven out of ten are handheld titles in favor of the Nintendo 3DS. Mario Kart 8 continues to hang on to the charts at number five this week, while a new Atelier game on PS3 debuted last week, claiming the third spot on the chart. Watch Dogs for PS3 hangs onto the top ten at number ten. Despite debuting this week in Japan as part of a retail package, Wii Sports Club only sold around 2k copies. Most likely everyone who wanted to experience those games did so thanks to downloading them from the Nintendo eShop.

  • Officer Raichu

    poor ps4 and wii u(especially since ps4 will go under 6k next week most likely(wii u should go to around 7.5kish)

  • Sdudyoy

    Everything went down, the Wii U and PS3 is selling better than the PS4, but nothing is selling very good.

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      Nope. Not at all on the console front.

  • bistricky

    Gee .. I bet Microsoft is dying to get their XboxOne into the Japanese console wars …. lol

    • LordiMcKill

      I can’t wait for September! That One plane probably won’t even leave the hanger…

  • matthew garcia

    Man maybe Nintendo should hurry up and try to launch Wii u in China cuz there getting no love in America, Europe, or Japan

    • Daniel Gonzalez

      If it isn’t working in those regions, it probably won’t make much a difference anywhere else.

      • matthew garcia

        I know the Chinese don’t really like the Japanese but there so many people there

        • Daniel Gonzalez

          True. Though in that region, they’re more into MMORPGs I believe. So, hard to say how many would be interested in any console.

          • matthew garcia

            That’s true

      • oontz

        PS4 is selling like hotcakes here in Taiwan, it’s the console of choice. XB1 hasn’t launched here yet though, but I don’t see it making a big splash when it does.

        • Rinslowe

          Are either console officially launched there yet?

          • oontz

            Yes ps4 officially launched here in December 2013.

          • Rinslowe

            Wii U?

          • oontz

            Wiiu launched here earlier in 2013. However thanks to nintendo’s stance on region locking and os language choices, it’s not selling as well as it could be. The wiiu here is the Japanese one, so it offers no English or mandarin language options on the system or the games. Another shot in the foot by Nintendo in my opinion. We just recently got a Chinese 3ds here but again the actual amount of games available in Chinese is pittyful when compared to the Japanese one. Since it’s region locked if you want to play the full catalogue you’re forced to by the Japanese one.

          • Rinslowe

            Aren’t the Taiwanese all speaking Min Nan Hua anyway? A very southern dialect native to Fujian Province…
            The patch to Putong Hua might come when they release on the mainland.

          • oontz

            Correct, the language with the most native speakers in Taiwan is Taiwanese Hokkien, or “Taiwanese” for short. However Mandarin Chinese is the official language of Taiwan and is almost universally spoken and understood. Standard Chinese has been the only officially sanctioned medium of instruction in schools in Taiwan since the late 1940s, following the incoming KMT from mainland China. English is third. Bottom line, In schools now students learn 3 languages… Mandarin, Taiwanese, and English.

          • Rinslowe

            Taiwanese is in fact Min Nan Hua which originated from Fujian province. More specifically area’s from Quanzhou to Fuzhou of course including Xiamen… Where most native Taiwanese have roots originating from.
            I’m confirmed to be in Taiwan this October. What is it you do there, if you don’t mind me asking?

          • oontz

            Ha ha, no I cannot speak Taiwanese. It is a very difficult language. I do speak enough Mandarin to survive, however I am no where near fluent.

          • Rinslowe

            Yeah, Mandarin is a lot easier than Min Nan Hua or Taiwanese as you put it. You know the funniest thing here is that in two posts we’ve kept to our own versions of the title of the language according to our experiences in either place. Even though we’re both foreigners in foreign lands. Of course this interpretation is a hot topic for debate in China (mainland), especially Fujian province “and” Taiwan. Ha.
            But lets not elaborate too much on the topic. Hmm hmm….

    • gamer457

      Wii U beat the Xbox One in Europe, and it’s still beating the PS4 in Japan. It’s also doing good in America. Also, it’s absurd how the Wii U beat the Xbox One globally in May and in June despite the Xbox One having it’s price pierced, and for this month it’s looking like it will outsell it again. You are just a simple minded troll, who gets satisfaction by bashing a video console. Keep cunning but it’s not gonna be clever enough my friend.

      • matthew garcia

        Just cuz it beat x box a couple of months doesn’t mean it’s doing good and yes it barely beats ps4 in Japan but ps4 own America and Europe by far. Xbox and Wii u are both doing bad

        • Rinslowe

          Yet more apologist nonsense. Mathew’s version of telling it how it is: PS4 is beating everything so there!! Lololol.

          Like an obsession. Spend more time on the guitar and less time loving that plastic.

          • matthew garcia

            :) how are you today

          • Rinslowe

            Lol. It’s not about me…

          • matthew garcia

            I played guitar and some bravely default today lol

          • Rinslowe

            Including console crusader for the beloved PS4 yet again. More guitar less fanboy = good. Just a typical day in the life of Mathew Gonzalez.

          • matthew garcia

            I never heard of a Mexican called Matthew Gonzalez lol

          • Rinslowe

            Lighten up. lool

          • matthew garcia

            Why did you edit your comment and take off Matthew gonzalez

          • matthew garcia

            Why did you edit your

          • Rinslowe

            Lololol… Angry and exposed…

          • matthew garcia

            :) I’m not angry of loving Sony. I love Nintendo also. I’ll love Nintendo more in 2015 and ps4 also. I know ps4 doesn’t have much to play but it’s selling very well no denying that. Wii u is selling like crap no denying that neither but I will have what I want in 2015 when Zelda and x come out. I’ll be happier with it later down the road

          • Rinslowe

            ” I’m not angry of loving Sony.
            You “are” crazy from loving Sony a little “too much”… lol.

            ” I know ps4 doesn’t have much to play”
            I never implied that.

            “Wii u is selling like crap no denying that neither”
            Who’s debating that? But more importantly, what has it got to do with – being on the defensive as a Sony “brand” apologist?

          • matthew garcia

            Well it’s not like I’m lying. Wii u is getting stomped by ps4. That’s all I said. Why does that make you so angry

          • Rinslowe

            “Wii u is getting stomped by ps4. That’s all I said. Why does that make you so angry”
            Lol. What do your opinions of one piece of hardware have to do with your defensiveness of another? Console defenders seeing everyone else as the fanboys. Lololol. Not surprising I guess.

          • PrincessKairi

            You guys need to get a room and f*** already

          • Rinslowe

            Is that an invitation? You’ve got quite the appetite…
            :P

          • matthew garcia

            Smh

          • matthew garcia

            You have been exposed your an unhonest fool who has to change his comments lol. You have a goodnight lol

          • Rinslowe

            So you are sensitive to the fact you’ve been exposed as a console fanboy… lol

            Yeeah.

          • matthew garcia

            I’m not the one changing my comments. I’m honest with myself and will back up what I say. Your an idiot who has to change things around to hide how stupid you are. At least I’m honest lol. Like I said goodnight sir

          • Rinslowe

            First an exposed console fanboy goes into denial.
            Then resorts to insults exposing his hypocrisy in dishonesty, loool

            “I won’t insult you”, one day…

            “Your an idiot who has to change things around to hide how stupid you are.”, the next

            Nothing new to see here…haha.

          • matthew garcia

            Like i said I don’t change my comments lol. Your trying to hide the fact that you did.Your the one in denial lol. Admit it you changed your comment.

          • Rinslowe

            What a child. Your now desperate to make this anything but about you. Typical predictable behaviour for a console zealot. In your mind a simple edit means dishonesty lololol. The meaning is exactly the same…

            You can’t change the fact your Exposed buddy. Just deal with it.
            Don’t get angry.

            LMAO…..Rinslowe you owning these clowns in here…That’s right expose their Sony Fan Boy Bias A**

          • Rinslowe

            “Like i said I don’t change my comments lol.”
            Sorry what were you lying?
            “Why did you edit your comment lol. Wow your something else”.

            Lol Denial, Hypocrisy, Insults… Check, check and check..

          • matthew garcia

            You didn’t even have the balls to keep your initial comment it’s when you got pissed that you went back to it like you said it all along lol. Me and Daniel will continue to get on your last nerve I’m sure.

          • Rinslowe

            “You didn’t even have the balls to keep your initial comment”
            You no longer make any sense. Lol. According to your logic, posters can only respond when the original comment is directed at them? And posters are not allowed to utilise features built into disqus? Same meaning, same message Mathew. No need to get upset about it…

            “it’s when you got pissed that you went back to it like you said it all along lol.”
            Please substantiate…

          • Officer Raichu

            do you go outside :P

          • Officer Raichu

            you got me XD

            Lol it’s all good your cool guy man

          • Arthur Jarret

            Did you know you put in ‘lol’ in every post – despite there being nothing to Laugh Out Loud about?

            The repititive nature just makes it look silly.

            (And that’s the only thing I’d like to add to THIS conversation, lol)

          • Rinslowe

            Thank you for that. I guess though that having nothing to laugh about is subjective as until the racism rubbish was pulled. I was laughing the whole time…
            Let me make it less repetitive. LOL.

          • matthew garcia

            Sorry I couldn’t argue all night I fell asleep had to get ready for work this morning. Cmoooon rinslowe so I like Sony and I say things about Wii u that are true. Who cares I mean who really does that much

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            “Who cares I mean who really does that much”

            You really have to learn to ignore egomaniacs, and focus on those who get it, not to mention get you as well. Just say what needs to be said, and move on. Don’t be someone’s ego booster. Besides that, was a poor move to bring racism into it. Just saying.

          • Rinslowe

            As far as Curriculum Vitae’ go. That was pretty accurate of yourself. But whats the position this time?
            Part Time Worked Wanted: Required To Take The High Road
            Sorry, looks like you’re over qualified…
            :(

          • matthew garcia

            Lol trying to act like you said this comment all along. Quit flip flopping your comments and changing them

            Is there some kind of actual connection here? lol.

          • matthew garcia

            Dude I didn’t know my negative comments on Wii u would bother someone so much lol. You and David trail seemed to have takin it the hardest. Sorry but I like Wii u daily. I like the people on it. It’s a nice little community :). Glad I’m a part of it

          • Rinslowe

            Like I’ve been saying don’t get angry about being “exposed”. Lol. Why are you sorry for liking Wii U Daily?

          • matthew garcia

            Lol picking on the 2 Hispanic guys huh

          • Rinslowe

            Lame. I have no idea of either of your races. Neither do I care frankly, as I’ve already said. You’re weak and shameless for even going there. Both of you are complete console warriors and Sony apologists. What does that have to do with your race?

  • Adrian

    I never have understood what the numbers in the parentheses mean.

    • http://www.youtube.com/azhood321 AZHood

      The sales for the previous week.

    • Jake

      For software, the total sales, for hardware and the previous weeks sales

      • Adrian

        Ohh k. No wonder it made no sense. It changes meanings! The article itself should really mention this.

  • brian

    Website format is all fucked up

  • Daniel Gonzalez

    It’s nice to see that Vita is at least selling well in one region despite being outsold by 3DS. Those console sales though…horrible.

    • Ducked

      Yeah it shows most western gamers have poor taste in games. Vita has some strong software, very underrated IMO.

      • Daniel Gonzalez

        That it does. Not really poor taste, just different tastes in gaming.

        • Ducked

          It just feels like every game here is a futuristic/sci-fi shooter.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            I see plenty of games of other genres. To each their own there. Though, you can thank Microsoft for creating the stereotype, since 360 was loaded with them.

      • The Clockwork Being

        Yeah I plan to get a Vita after getting my 3DS. Vita does have a lot of JRPGs that I want to play.

        • Ducked

          It’s good to have when there’s no JRPGs available on consoles yet.

  • Mr Ninty

    sony is doomed, sony should go third-party but wait the dont have there own games, nintendo should buy sony. atleast with the sales in nippon i can get back at them.

    but realistically nothing is realy doing good. that the 3DS is still selling so good amazed me still, but the wiiu should do better around the end of august when hyrule warriors comes out and from then on it should do a 20k a week and maybe even hit 200k a month from september

    • matthew garcia

      Sony is doomed as a company but the PlayStation brand will go on

      • Rinslowe

        This is very true. The one thing I can agree on with a console crusader. Lol The playstation “brand” is a golden ticket, should Sony ever get desperate enough to sell it off. The worse they get, while the better their gaming division does, the harder it would be for them to say no to potential buyers.

        • matthew garcia

          Be gone you comment changing idiot lol

          • Rinslowe

            Hahaha…
            Mathew showing his true colours. No need to resort to insults when things don’t go your way…

          • matthew garcia

            Obviously things weren’t going your way when you have edit your comments lol

          • Rinslowe

            Hard to argue with that logic lol.. Obviously you have everything figured out – Daniel Garcia. lololol.
            Yeeeah

            Again, don’t get angry you’re “Exposed

          • matthew garcia

            You really have to let this hate of me and Daniel go dude lol. Like I said I comment and you reply to me even when I’m not talking directly to you. I know you want me off of this site badly and your trying your hardest to do it but I’m not going anywhere. I’m sure there will be more bad news on bad sales and delays tomarrow and I will comment on them further just cuz it’s there to comment on. Any anger is made by the person who doesn’t like what I have to say and that person is you.

          • Rinslowe

            Your both “Exposed” as Sony apologists. How is that hating on you? Lol. Are there now rules on using the reply feature of disqus? A hater who insults people calling someone else a hater. That’s not expected…
            :)

          • matthew garcia

            Ok I’m a fanboy lol I’m cool with that. Everybody is a fan of something. Again you keep avoiding the question. Did you not flip flop and change your comments? Why are you afraid to answer the question lol

          • Rinslowe

            Learn to read the difference between “avoidance” and “irrelevance”…

    • oontz

      “sony should go third-party but wait the dont have there own games”

      You do know sony has 13 first party studios making games that sony OWNS, right?

      • Rinslowe

        You do know Sony fanboy baiting when you see it… right?

        • oontz

          Completely. However I also know some users on here actually believe that as fact.

          • Rinslowe

            There are also some on here. Maybe just maybe a “little” including yourself that are total Sony fanboys lol.
            On the defensive at the first sign of baiting and completely oblivious. Except it’s pretty obvious to everybody else.

            I like Sony. Ever since the first playstation I’ve owned and enjoyed every one of their consoles. PS4 Daily is like a ghost town most times, imo.
            Would be nice to have Sony fans here too. Ones that can hold a decent conversation on the topic without taking their brand loyalty too seriously.
            Or calling out Nintendo fans on a Nintendo “focused” news site…

            Haha, Just sayin…

          • oontz

            I am no more a sony fanboy than I am a Nintendo or Xbox one. I have always loved Nintendo and will always be a fan of their work. I owned a ps1 (with my n64) but not ps2 (I had GameCube and Xbox). I have owned every Nintendo console but not every Sony one, most recently I sold my vita and bought a 3ds xl. You may call me a sony fanboy but the truth is I am a fanboy of video games. I hold no allegiance to any one brand. If a system has a game I want to play, I buy it.

          • Rinslowe

            Ok I can accept that honestly. I’m a hobbyist of the same flavour. BUT. IT might be possible you take the local Nintendo faithful on this site a little too seriously??
            Seems the same three guys are jumping at the first sign of a negative comment in Sony’s direction. And clear giveaway, some people are more sensitive to opinions than others. Lol.
            Know what I mean?

          • matthew garcia

            Don’t listen to him he’s unhonest and can’t be trusted. He changes his comments after he realizes he says something stupid. He just did it to me

          • Rinslowe

            Lololol. Like a child… You should seek help for your issues, hypocrisy and general love of that plastic
            Don’t be angry.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol I love plastic so what. Your the one who spent an hour researching my comments cuz you have nothing else to do in your life and on top of that you can’t back up what you say so you change your comments to hide how stupid you are. I rather talk to a fanboy then an unhonest idiot like you lol

          • Rinslowe

            Where do you get your figures from? lol…
            Lets add making things up to your list of exposed fanboy antics. Really, you’re not saying anything a typical brand warrior wouldn’t say when your back is against the proverbial wall. Need a shoulder to cry on? Go talk to mummy.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol sorry dude call what you want if I’m a fanboy oh well big deal but Your a liar. An unhonest person who can’t back up his stupid comment so he changes it so no one else will see. I rather be a fanboy then the kinda person you are lol

          • Rinslowe

            Such an angry little man. Haha.
            Genuine crazy fans like yourself are always so quick to fly off the handle. Thanks for proving the point in such style. Mathew Gonzalez.

          • matthew garcia

            Lol your gonna hate on me as long as I’m on this site everyday aren’t you. Well I’ll be happy to oblige you :)

          • Rinslowe

            Can’t remember ever being the one to call you “stupid” or an “idiot”? Lol. I only exposed you and your apologist fanboy antics…

            Exposed what lol. Your the one changing your comments then you bring that comment back like you said it all along and trying to act cool about it lol. Just shows how much more of a liar you are. Try not to change your comments next time lol

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            It’s amusing that you gave him this much attention. If someone is going around using the word “expose,” it just means that they have some silly personal agenda that has nothing to do with you. Just their own insecurities. If they didn’t, then there would be no reason for them to respond, and make it all about you. By how many comments I’ve seen over the months like this, it’s obvious obession is taking its toll. Pretty sad when you think about it. Do as you will, but it’s better to focus more on those who matter to you, and less on a handful of sour grapes that are so vocal in what you do. Just some sound advice. Good luck.

          • matthew garcia

            That dude hates me lol. I mean people agree with my comments but he never goes after them even Magnus makes worse comments but he still chooses to come at me. It’s definitely personal with him

          • Rinslowe

            “That dude hates me lol. “
            That’s not true Daniel Garcia or is it Mathew Gonzalez? Hard to tell you two apart these days haha. Oh man. Hate is such a strong word…

          • matthew garcia

            Why do you pick on the 2 guys that have Hispanic last names lol. Other people say negative things all the time but you focus your attention on me and Daniel. Why?

          • Rinslowe

            Is there any connection between your names, your race and your shared console defender commenting? Cause I’m not seeing it…
            This might just be the lowest of low of failed accusations I’ve ever seen on Wii U Daily. Lool.

          • matthew garcia

            Sorry but the truth is is that the 2 people that you try to insult all the time happen to be Mexicans. Like i said other people make negative comments but you only focus on the 2 Mexicans. That’s how I see it

          • Rinslowe

            You’re shameless. I have no idea “what” your race is and frankly neither do I really care either way. You’re a total whack job for trying to play the racial card. Honestly that’s the lowest accusation I ever seen. There was no need to get angry over being Exposed and it was shocking to see you stoop to racial accusations at the final moment. If it were up to me, I’d ban your ass…

            If you have any further doubts about that refer to this;
            http://wiiudaily.com/2014/07/japanese-sales-week-30/#comment-1500954067

            As far as calling you out on your hypocrisy, your console defending or general negativity. I would advise you just get used to it…

          • matthew garcia

            Lol all you had to do was avoid me and Daniel instead of insulting us on our opinions and this whole thing would have been avoided

          • Rinslowe

            “Lol all you had to do was avoid me and Daniel instead of insulting us on our opinions and this whole thing would have been avoided”
            What would have been avoided LOL?
            You falsely and shamelessly accusing another poster of being racist? Against all facts and logic? Based on the weakest of examples possible?
            Total console warrior gets ousted. What does he do? Claims victim status from racism. That’s with you till the end buddy. Being a fanboy pales in comparison to that, holy shit… Again, if it were up to me I’d ban your ass for that.

          • matthew garcia

            Like I said learn about world culture more before you go and say the things that you say

          • Rinslowe

            Lol ???
            If I want to call you Mathew Gonzalez because your a mirror image of another troll then I’ll do that. I have no sensitivities towards doing so because neither myself nor my comments are “racist” in nature. Only you and you alone are taking a childish offense to something that simply “is not there”.
            This proves just how low you’re willing to go… Again, you have “no shame”.

          • matthew garcia

            The thing is I never called you a racist. I jokingly said I hope your not a racist. I guess it was just a coincidence that you despise to Hispanic guys on Wii u daily lol. Seriously I think me and you can have a more mature attitude towards not just this but this whole ordeal.

          • Rinslowe

            “The thing is I never called you a racist. I jokingly said I hope your not a racist.”
            Holy crap, you’re full of it
            o_O

          • matthew garcia

            Why do you go through the trouble to research and make your comments so long. Did you even get sleep last night?

          • matthew garcia

            :)

          • matthew garcia

            Lol I hope your not a racist

          • Rinslowe

            Why would I be a racist?

          • matthew garcia

            Cuz Your putting two Mexicans together. Gonzales and Garcia are Mexican last names and you only pick on us and put our names together. You don’t do that with ducked, or oonz,Magnus or many others. The only ones you have something personal against is me and Daniel. Or as you would say Matthew Gonzalez or Daniel Garcia lol.

          • Rinslowe

            That’s the saddest lack of logic failed attempt at racial accusations I’ve ever seen. You should be ashamed of yourself lool. Obviously you are both Daniel Garcia and Mathew Gonzalez on account of being indistinguishable as total Playstation apologists. lololol.
            Making this a racial issue is the lowest of low.
            ” You don’t do that with ducked, or oonz,Magnus”
            That’s your only logic for being such a troll? Obviously I don’t consider their commenting, their bias or their accounts as the same person. You on the other hand I haven’t decided yet. It’s very possible.’

            Again, you should be ashamed of yourself for stooping to lows, no-one else but a complete desperado would try…

            Add exposed as a “Hater” to that list of yours.

          • matthew garcia

            Sorry but maybe you should learn a little bit more on world culture before you go and say something like Matthew Gonzalez and Daniel Garcia I can’t tell them apart. As a minority we here that a lot from racist. They say things like oh those Mexicans you can’t tell them apart. I’m from Texas so I’m use to it but that’s exactly what you sounded like

          • Rinslowe

            Maybe you should just learn to be less sensitive about something as simple as this. Lol. There’s no racism here. The fact that you consciously and falsely accused another poster of being racist ONLY because it furthered an agenda proves you lack even the most basic sensibilities. Being a negative nancy or a console apologist is the least of your worries, obviously.

          • matthew garcia

            Do you live in America?

          • Rinslowe

            “it just means that they have some silly personal agenda that has nothing to do with you.”
            Hard to argue with that logic.
            o_O

          • matthew garcia

            Lol you think me and Daniel are the same person. Lol I promise you were not

          • Rinslowe

            Lool

          • Shootdatrupee!…

            Lol there’s a ‘lol’ in every comment from here to Rinslowe’s first reply.

          • Rinslowe

            YEAH!! Wheres Arthur? I want a witness! UM lol….? No..yes I’m sure! I’m lol’ing right now lol. [-_-//\

          • matthew garcia

            Admit you changed your comment lol

          • oontz

            Are you talking about Rinslowe?

          • matthew garcia

            Yes iam

      • Mr Ninty

        yeah but how many games are at nintendo level or are willing to stay with sony if the ship sinks.
        and i dont think sony came up with those games so they cant shift things around when they hit the iceberg

        • oontz

          Seeing as Sony OWNS them, I don’t see how they can choose to stay or not. If sony wanted to sell their IPs and Studios, well then that’s a different discussion altogether.

          • Daniel Gonzalez

            As long as the PlayStation brand is profitable, I believe Sony will be fine. They may have to do away with some of their other divisions, however.

  • Rinslowe

    On the hardware front, we’re practically looking at the same results as last week. lol Xbox One shouldn’t even bother imo.
    They’re better off launching in China later this year as planned. And trying to get decent results from the head start. The Chinese though have really different gaming tastes. Serious or hobbyist gamer’s are all using PC. There’s a modest console crowd, but easily the minority. Mobile is also a big thing. BUT. So long as the consoles have “games” the Chinese want to play. Then there is huge potential to reach new gamer’s all the time. Staggering amounts of potential. Hopefully it’s not just all outside studio’s and their content. There’s also a lot of talent here. And no-one knows the market better than they do. Western styled games will mostly just tank, until the image of console gaming has taken root. Those that are into western type games in China already own the latest consoles…

    • Shootdatrupee!…

      Also Xbox will be absurdly expensive in China unless Microsoft sells them for a considerable loss. I think…converted to chinese rmb the Xbox One would be nearly 3 times the average monthly income there?(haven’t fact checked that one)

      • Rinslowe

        Actually and I know this isn’t exactly common knowledge today. But although the average salary is from the likely price of an Xbox One to a a few thousand RMB more. The market for those that can easily afford an Xbox One when it drops would not be less than the population of the United States of America or thereabouts…
        The amount of people that buy into official consoles being an order of magnitude less than that. At least until the market has been matured.

  • oontz

    Hey wiiudaily the mobile version of the site is utter crap now since you changed formats. Choppy scrolling, unable to copy paste, and big ass menu/link bar taking up 1/4 of the bottom screen.

    • Rinslowe

      Yeah there’s a few issues happening. You might get better luck mentioning it on the official site update article.

      • oontz

        Noted.

  • InterTreble

    PS4 is a total disaster in Japan. No games, no sales. A piece of cake. US and UK markets are totally different…

  • Donaald

    Ps4 is selling even less.

  • iamserious

    Damn that Mario Kart 8 drop in sales is freakin sad. :-/

    • Officer Raichu

      its dead flat wow

    • Shootdatrupee!…

      We’ve seen worse…
